    Face it. NE is beatable. They almost lost to both the Jests and the Bills. NE's defense is a joke. We will have an opportunity to beat them.

    If this team can get it together and start playing well again, it isnt quite over. I know this, if we win the next 2 games, we will be 6-6 and NE will be 8-4 at best. You guys will be talking about the possibilities of winning the division.

    Now, obviously to win the divison we will have to go 5-1 over these last 6 games. While that seems impossible the way we have played the last 2 games, just try and realize that if our OL pulls its head out of its ass and Tannehill steps it up a bit, it is certaily possible to pull off.

    The Jags and Bills are terrible. We play them at home. Seattle is not the same team on the road that they are at home. If we get back to playing the way we were a few weeks ago, we could win that game. Ive already stated how NE is beatable. And yea, the 9ers are tough, but they just tied in SF against a team we beat. So its not impossible.

    Look, if we can pull off 9-7, considering we will likely beat NE twice in that process, that means they would only have to lose 2 other games of their other 5 remaining in order to fall to 9-7 themselves. This is our only path. 9-7 will not get us a WC, because again, not only would going 9-7 mean sweeping NE, they would have to win 10 for that to throw us in the WC mix and its likely 9 wins wont get a WC. So winning the division is are only possible way in.

    Face it, the AFC east is WEAK. Its still possible. If we come home and beat Seattle, that can change the momentum. Beating NE the next week I promise would have all of you talking about how its possible we are 8-7 and playing a 9-6 NE team in week 17 for the division. 2 games in a row to get us back in it. Lets do this ****!

    Hell, NE could easily lose to Indy this week. Who else is left on their schedule? I can promise there isnt a game that should be considered a gimmie for them. They lost at home to Arizona. They play almost every game close because their defense is so bad. We can beat them. Its just a matter of guys getting it together and playing well.

    Get the run game going and get Tannehill back on track and this is not over. Laugh all you want. Go ahead. Im not guaranteeing anything. Im not even saying its likely. I know it isnt. Im just saying it isnt over. If we lose next week you can close it down. But, until we lose one of the next 2 games, Im not throwing in the towel.
    We are i the terrible to mediocre category being at home doesn't change anything when we are at level we are now. We are in the same tier with the bills and Jets and everyone in the league knows it.

    As limited as the game plans are, and with that inept offense, this team is much more looking like a 6-10 squad rather than a 9-7 team. It's time to open up the offense.

    Ask the Giants how hard it is to beat the Bengals. We killed the Jets in their place...sent a message. And St Louis, despite their record, is playing everyone hard (minus the Patriots).
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    We will finish no better then 6-10 again this year. More likely 5-11. No way in hell we beat the Pats or 49ers. Seahawks game is a longshot too
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    We barely beat the bengals and rams but beating them does not put us in the same galaxy for the term "world beaters" and the jets beat us at home too with out some key players so it was basically even. We beat teams in our tier (mediocre) which is good but not one team that's actually good or a playof team this year.

    I'm going to keep watching this team, so I might as well hold on to the towel.

    You never know, right?
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    Well, you can call it whatever you want, but I think this team played pretty damn well in October. Giving up 36 only points and going 3-0 is impressive no matter WHO we played. If we played with that kind of effort all the time, we SHOULD be world beaters. Hence the reason I chose that term.

    It's unfortunate they couldn't carry it over into this month. Already we're already giving up more than twice as many points (79) in the same amount of games against some pretty bad teams for the most part.
